    the mars volta--- LISTEN!

    hmm, my guess is i wont get alot of replies on this topic but..

    im gonna take a stab in the dark and say i doubt alot of you have heard of the mars volta. well, some say they are this generations pink floyd. some say they are this generations led zeppelin. and its true. they hit hard like when led zeppelin first came into the world. and they are as abstract and experimental as pink floyd was.

    anyways, good songs to download;

    1) take the viel cerpin taxt- this is probably one of the first songs you would try. it hits hard. listen to the ending. holy moly.

    2) telavators- if you want something soft and soulfull, try this. towards the end, the acoustic guitar is ORGASMIC as the singer sings "pull the pin.. mark these words, on his grave"

    3) cicatriz esp- personally, my favorite mars volta song. the middle has a 3 minute intermission with odd noises and build up. that turns some people off. but its well done. listen to the end "even if you, even if you reach inside of vaults, whatever be the cost" man, the vocals on this song is amazing.

    4) roulette dars (the haunt of)- this is probably thier most energenic song they play live. its really neat because it fluctuates between agressive and solf on a dime. every band attempts this, but rarely this well.

    5) the widow- i put this here because its probably thier most radio friendly song, thus probably would appeal to alot of you. the lyrics on this song are GREAT. to me, it sounds like its about a guy being continuously haunted by ghosts "and i hear him every night, on every street, and everytime he just makes me warm"

    there you go. if anyone downloads, let me know what you think.

    I wasn't a big fan of At The Drive-In and I'm not a big fan of the Mars Volta. It seems to be one of those bands that you either love or hate. The drummer in my band loves them, I kinda hate 'em. They seem to be great musicians and all that but they have a real pretentious vibe that turns me off. Not my cup-o-tea. But I'm positive many others would absolutely love 'em, just not me.
    Even babies know the difference.

    I've never heard of them either, actually the first time I saw them on this site I didn't even know they were a band.

    I purchased Deloused a couple weeks ago. After a few listens I was hooked. I dont really consider it pretentious, its just something different. How is that arrogant? I always kind of felt that way too, like why the hell would you make a 28 min song you arrogant bastard, but it doesn't come off like that at all. If youre willing to try something different and give it a chance (it takes about 2-3 listens before it sinks in) buy this album.

    Kind of weird how this band gets brought up on pp.o like right after I bought it.
